    It was supposed to be $29,000 but some texas dealers convinced the higher ups they could sell it at $35,000. Turns out, no. At that point it was competing with the likes of bmw 3 series and a mercury wasn't going to win that. Mine sat on the lot for 8 months before I snagged it for $27,500, which I always thought was a fair price for it.

    Yep, $35,000!
    That was pretty salty money for a Mercury 4 door sedan.

    The dealer that I bought my Marauder from had SIX black 2003's sitting on the lot (Mid December 2002)
    I had the "pick of the litter" to choose from.
    My 300A came with the only option; 6 CD changer in the trunk. (I'm not a fan of Sunroofs)
    Mercury was already offering a $3,000 Rebate IIRC, to help move the Marauders off the lots.
    I got mine 'On the road'/Taxes Tags & Title for $30,600.

    Nossir....WAY smaller...one of my key words was COMFORT. At 6'3" that vehicle is not comfortable...but it is pretty dang sweet! (also, I've not seen many selling at sticker)
